Listen to Podcast with me over at Youth Hacks

Recently I recorded an interview with Youth Hacks – a podcast dedicated to youth workers. You can listen to it here.

Why I love this podcast in comparison to so many others I have done, is that one of the hosts, Joel Diaz, for the past year has actually been implementing everything he heard me say at a conference I was speaking at! His story of what has been accomplished between himself, a straight conservative youth pastor, and the PFLAG in rural Georgia is unreal, and a total testament to the power of this bridge building work!

Much love.

    Andrew, thanks so much for joining us on the show. It was a lot of fun talking to you. I was really looking forward to seeing you at NYWC this year, but your name isn’t on the list. Are you gonna be there?

    • Andrew Marin

      I’m not going to be there this year. I love them to death though. If you want to know why I won’t be there you should ask them why.

  • Joel Diaz

    Andrew, thanks for sharing your heart, and always speaking with boldness in love. I hope and pray that you continue to inspire and raise up bridge builders across this country and around the world.

    Christ’s peace.
